This study investigated effects of mental imagery and reward on creativity using ninety-six male and female participants who were classified as vivid and non-vivid imagers selected randomly from the population of one hundred and seventy-six senior secondary school students (SS2) of Alvana Model Secondary School, Alvan Ikoku College of Education, Owerri, Imo State. Participants were again assigned randomly into reward and no reward conditions and reward was manipulated by verbal instruction. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) was the statistic used for data analysis. Results indicate that on creativity task, vivid imagers differed significantly from non-vivid imagers (p<0.001).The finding also showed that participants in the reward condition differed significantly from participants in the no reward condition on the creativity task (p<0.001). There was an interaction effect between mental imagery and reward on creativity (p<0.01). Implications of the findings were highlighted and suggestions for further research were made.
